This is one of my favorite places to visit. The park has been upgraded since COVID. I love having sunday brunch at the Selkirk hotel during the summer. The actors/workers in the park are very friendly and informative. It is a great way to spend an afternoon.

I read some reviews that made me skeptical of this place. But honestly, how do you beat this? The new indigenous center is incredible! This whole place is like a world of museums and historical sites all wrapped into one amusement park! With… An amusement park!
The entry fees dirt cheap and there’s so much to see! I spent approximately four hours here and I think I rushed it.
Highly recommend!

This is my second time to Fort Edmonton Park, and first time post rejuvenation. Was a nice way to spend the day. Our 2.5 year old enjoyed the experience and the steam train.

Fantastic day at the park. Grandchildren loved the rides. But they also loved the town and fort. The attendees were awesome and took time to talk to the kids. We’re very informative. A good bang for your buck

I haven’t visited the park since I was a young child so it was neat to come back as an adult. They have added some areas but a majority is how I remember it. The midway was updated a a fun time. Enjoyed showing our little one the sites and plan to return again as there is so much to see.

Fort Edmonton Park is a haunted place. I once saw a large table move by it self right before my eyes in one of the rooms.

Great job on the midway. Train and streetcar are authentic modes of travel to cross the long walks in this park.

The entire experience was great. It is nice to be out in fresh air even though COVID rules have been reintroduced. The train is always fun. The street car is worth the ride. And the Ice Cream Shop is to die for

With the brand new Indigenous Peoples Experience Exhibit, together with the steam engine and train, the street car, the rides in the amusement park, various living history museums, Fort Edmonton Park has established itself the #1 cultural and tourist attraction in Edmonton and Alberta in Spring and Summer months for adults, kids, and families. The Indigenous Peoples Experience is a world class, one of a kind, multi-sensory exhibition of First Nations' and Metis' peoples' histories, cultures, experiences, and perspectives on Treaty 6 land, Beaver Hills, which is the present Edmonton region, Alberta, Canada. it is extremely educational and moving especially when comes to the history and legacy of residential schools in Canada. My wife and I had the popular August weekend buffet brunch at the Johnson's Cafe, Hotel Selkirk. $30 per adult including park admission, excellent value with plenty of food, and regular adult park admission is $26. The Johnson's Cafe was jam-packed with families on the Sunday we were there. One thing I would suggest Fort Edmonton Park to upgrade is the Gift Shop, not many variety of good quality gifts on sale there, quite disappointing. I highly recommend locals and tourists to visit or re-visit Fort Edmonton park, just seeing the new Indigenous Peoples Experience is already worth your admission money, you won't be disappointed.

I haven’t been to Fort Edmonton Park in years and was expecting more. The renovations or upgrades do not really seem to fit, ran out of time to see the new Indigenous exhibit, as we really didn’t know it was new or any different that the rest of the wall thru exhibits until we were boarding the train at 4:30. The modern (doesn’t fit with theme) gift shop was packed with people looking to spend money, felt empty and was lacking overall. The construction evidence of dirt and weeds everywhere was distracting. Full cost admission and many of attractions /exhibits were fully open and operating, including the trolley car. Nothing to see on the train ride other than the train itself.
I still enjoyed the visit as my tour companions are awesome and helped fill the entertainment gaps. Good place to spend some time, but a little expensive and disappointing with what is actually operating / open.
